Creamy Pepper Jack Cheese Soup
I thought this sounded good and had some pepper jack cheese on hand. Read the reviews, figuring other reviewers might not have made a roux-based soup before and did something weird to make the "texture off" like many had said it was. I have made plenty of soups this way, cheesy ones too, so I figured it would be fairly simple and turn out tasty. Everything went fine until I added the pepper jack at the end. It WOULD NOT incorporate into the soup, even though I left the heat on and stirred and stirred it. I have NO IDEA why that would be - I have made similar recipes without this happening, like a pepper jack cheese sauce to go on macaroni and cheese. Ultimately, I do not recommend this recipe. The finished product had gooey balls of cheese floating in it. Not sure if this is the "weird texture" others talked about, but that's what I thought was wrong with it. Sorry!

Bran Flax Muffins
My grandma made these a lot during my childhood. I always felt like I was doing something good for myself when I ate one. Now that I’m grown up, I like to make them too, but with my own twist – I always chop the raisins up so they’re spread throughout the muffin more, and use pecan chips instead of mixed nuts. To eat, I slice them in half, warm them in the toaster oven, and finally, finish them with a smudge of cream cheese. Don’t let the name these muffins, or all the healthy ingredients in them, scare you away – if you didn’t see the recipe, you’d never know they had oat bran or flax in them, or that they’re low in fat and full of fiber. Bottom line? They rock! I highly recommend.

Simple Savory Pork Roast
I made this in the crock pot instead of the oven, and used fresh minced garlic in place of the garlic salt. Doubled the amount of spices and shook half of them with the pork, the other half with some carrots, potatoes, onions and green beans. It was great, even without any added salt. The combination of herbs gave this a great flavor - will make again!
